You need the one-way-bearing removal tool. (no, seriously, that's what it's called and that's it's only purpose)

Yeah, just put the gear in the removal tool on a sturdy workbench and pound firmly with a hammer.

Just did it. I used a 5mm socket on a screw driver atttachment and tapped that with a hammer. Came right out.

Went into the new one fine as well.

FYI. The socket eventualy will damage the bearings. Having to replace both of them, I ended up getting the tool for $4. Very worth it!and one more thing "DON'T BE AFRAID!"

Use a vise instead of a hammer if you have one. The vise will be much easier on the bearing than hammering it in.

yep I did the socket method, and now I just bought the tool, the tool is made to fit the bearing and not damage it, the socket will damage it after one or two times.
